    Guys, try it all first. I have a mate that has already adjusted his base, with minimal changes to his overall structure and it has fixed the problem. It does create vunerablilities else where, but that is nature of things. No base is perfect, no base should be uncrackable. Given the base building rules, there is a finite number of possible designs; all this would do is reduce the number of effective variations.

    They key to a good defense has always been the correct balance of weapons. Most of you should remember we only used to have 12 turrets, now we have been given 14. This basically 2 free turrets for defensive weapons. Everyone can put a flak on. You need a balance, if you display a particular bias - Vics, Sents or whatever it can be exploited.

    I for one cant wait to give these babies a run, as a Cutt prep fleet was always a favourite of mine because of the precision :)

    OOH Can I See Some Pictures Of This FARM ME BASE. NO BASE WAS UNBEATABLE BEFORE THIS "CHANGE" WITH DRAC TECH AND STRATEGY. BUT NOW OP4's ARE GONNA BE FARMED 10000000000000x MORE AND EVEN OP5's ARE WAY TOO EASY WITHOUT MORE LAND OR A REDUCTION TO 84-86 RANGE WITH BOOSTER III

    The most frustrating part at the moment is that with only 8% damage I didn't get a bubble and my OP still has six hours left to repair before I can move it.

    This will be the death of the game. Worst of it is, there's no way to organize a boycott til this BS is nerfed, I saw a mod warn someone about that earlier today.

    No base 'was' perfect, they were all crackable. Now every base is a lot easier to get into.
    They lowered the 'ceiling' of base design from about 90-95%(virtually unhittable except by the most skilled players) to 40-50%(some defense, easily doable) taking the difficulty out of base design and n00bifying the entire process of base hitting/base designing.

    There were plenty of **** bases to hit before. Now every base is a **** base enforced by the dynamics of offensive weapons.

    Get used to seeing that crappy asymmetrical design because that is the only template that can protect your whs against missiles now. Don't worry, they'll just put their missile fleet up and run your weak channel the old fashioned way - bring out the assault mortars/cannon ffs and blow up your clustered towers with less than 50% damage to their boats.

    Haha, don't even get these rubes started on that. The harassment factor of this change is second to none.
    You do realize that once you repairing, they can come hit you again, blow up your repping warehouse, and get another 10%.
    Right?

    Kixeye why not respond with your reasoning behind this instead of "try it then come with comments", everyone has seen and how it works on the vids... . The majority of players are pissed off about this.. Please just offer the reasoning for missiles getting the 96 range i dont think thats too much to ask??

    What's the over/under on how long it takes Kixeye to nerf this? HB3 was around for 2? months? Just enough time for people to instantly complete and/or speed up research and refit a couple boats or 20. I'm thinking about a month this go around.

    So... when the first coiner (or hacker more likely) swipes my loot, you won't be seeing any more coinage from me. And yes, I'll prolly take my ball and go home too. Tired of this bait and switch BS, bout time to take my business to another gaming company.

    you could change 2 towers to flack.. IT WONT STOP THESE kind of attacks from happening.. 2 FLACK will not stop a FULL MISSILE BOAT FLEET from taking your goods from the back....

    Right?

    Yes, I do know - and if it had been a "real" attack I wouldn't have posted that. I'm actually glad that it happened now when only a few people will have this tech because it gives me a chance to make some changes before a lot of people have it. I don't think it's as bad as a lot of people think it will be. What I will probably do when I can move things is shrink my island a bit to so I can make my OP and WHs safe, and move my Advanced and weapons labs to a less protected area. Now I just need to hope someone comes and gives me a full-on attack so I can redesign under a bubble. Volunteers? ;)

    This took me 30 min this morning.
    all 14 towers are still on the 6-turn gauntlet.
    What's the big deal?

    If I went to this base I wouldn't bother going through all turns... Can stop and kill all your base after the first turn!

    Cash cow for kixeye - ya would think they know who bought the booster and who hacked it. This is a great opportunity to ID and eliminate hackers.
    Also a great reason to pay to play.
    Good 2 or 3 week advantage to the CC users.
    Someday kixeye will understand hard core gamers don't like to be nickel and dimed to death - luckily most of those that pay don't play very well .. LOL

    Ah well more catch up!

    oh common, why u all are crying like babies, of course it's possible to redesign it...u still can safe all WH'S, ur op and ur Dock and 2 other buildings like rocket launch etc too.
    And the entrance is still good, the base can still be perfect. U only need the right base design, that'S all.


    Kixeye u are doing a great job, so dont hear what all these babys said.
    The missile range is good and it's still possible to have a untouchable base.
